Lyft drivers and labor organizers protested outside a meeting of Lyft executives and investors in downtown San Francisco on Monday morning. Gizmodo reports Lyft's valuation hit an estimated $25 billion this week, and the company held a meeting on Monday to drum up more investor money. Outside the meeting, 75 drivers and labor organizers protested falling wages, a lack of pricing transparency, and called for a driver minimum wage. Lyft driver Rebecca Stack-Martinez told Gizmodo, “It's not only falling wages, it’s the way we get paid for particular rides and that they change the way they structure things like surge pricing.” In San Francisco, Los Angeles, and San Diego, several hundred rideshare drivers and a few coalitions for Uber and Lyft drivers joined a planned 25-hour strike that began at midnight on Monday.
